“BEST CEVICHE ON ISLAND”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Everyone we spoke to, about 6 local people, said Lily's has the best ceviche and it truly was excellent. We ordered the trio of lobster, belize conch and shrimp. We had ceviche at two other restaurants in San Pedro, and they didn't compare to Lily's. It really was the best ceviche I've had in a long time. Aside from the fish, the sauce was perfect. It's wasn't too tart like may other's I've had, that you couldn't eat it without a tortilla chip. If you like ceviche, this is the best place to get it. There are 2 other options, just shrimp and just conch. Enjoy!!

“San Pedro Staple for Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

Lilly's has been our go to place for breakfast, for many years. The food is consistently good, the service is great and you have one of the best views in town as you enjoy your food on the outside deck. You meet a lot of ex-pats as well as locals, prices are a bit high but it's the same in any tourist town or any other restaurant along the beach.

“Great local food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Great local food at a reasonable price. Right on the beach. As I have read, service in Belize can be a little slow, but your on vacation, so relax. Next door, there was a restaurant that had a game that involved a guy shaking some coins or dice or something in a cup. It got annoying after a while and I even thought I might committ murder. Other than that, no complaints. I highly recommend.

“Dirty Banana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

We had absolutely the best chicken fajitas, huge portions and flaming hot out of the kitchen. Drinks were spectacular, a giant glassful of rum, chocolate and bananas, blended to perfection. We were outside but under cover, and when it rained sideways, tropical rain, we were nice and dry. Prices were very reasonable as well, great service.

“Lunch served at a table on the beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

We had lunch right on the beach at Lily's! The service was great and so was my meal! I had a local dish of stewed tender chicken, rice and beans, and a sweet potato salad. Awesome time at Lily's!
